The New England Patriots are ready to sign defensive end Andre Carter, according to Josina Anderson.
New England is desperate to add some playmaking ability on the defensive side of the ball after watching Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo get placed on injured reserve in the past month, and Carter could provide it. Carter, 34, has played for four different teams including the Patriots for one season back in 2011.
During that campaign, Carter amassed 10 sacks and 52 tackles Cheap Stitched Jerseys in 14 games. In 2007 and 2009, Carter racked up 10.5 and 11 sacks respectively for the Washington Redskins. His best season was in 2002 for the San Francisco 49ers, when he had 12.5 sacks.
The former University of California star last played in 2012 for the Oakland Raiders, appearing in 12 games without starting in any. He ended the year with 2.5 sacks.
Maybe this eulogy is premature. Maybe McCown will play as great as he did on Sunday the entirety of the time Cutler is sidelined by injury. Maybe the young players now forced into action on defense will provide a spark. Who knows. But the condition the Bears left Washington in isn’t promising.
Two years ago, a broken thumb for Cutler derailed a 7-3 start. Last season, injuries on defense helped sabotage a team that started 7-1. The Bears began this year 3-0, but success in the NFL is always fleeting. It would be enough to make a person turn away entirely if football’s gravitational pull wasn’t so strong.
Time of Death: Down 14 points with over twenty minutes left in the game, the Browns had a first down at the Green Bay 24. They ran three plays, lost two yards, and kicked a field goal, and that should be the dictionary entry for “Norv Turner.”
Cause of Death: It’s probably not Norv’s fault, however, that Brandon Weeden is bad in ways that make you doubt the laws of physics. His first half stat line read as follows: 5/14, 48 yards, one sack for a loss of ten yards, and one interception returned for eleven yards. Math tells us Cheap Softball Jerseys For Girls that you could have a worse performance than this. Math is full of shit.
